According to Reuters, less than one week into the month-long soccer rager, Russia’s beer supply is already depleted. “We just didn’t think they would only want beer,” said a waiter at a restaurant who ran out of draft lager on Monday and wasn’t expecting a new shipment for at least 24 hours.
Part of the problem can be traced back to the fact Russia simply underestimated how much the rest of the world LOVES beer. Apparently beer sales have plummeted by a third in Russia in recent years following new taxes and restrictions on advertising (and, you know, vodka), so there’s a very real possibility they just misjudged this thing a bit. But like true Russians, they are embracing the struggle instead of running from it.
We haven’t heard of any Chengdu bars running dry yet, though we do know that most international bars run great beer specials during the World Cup. The Beer Nest offers Belgium beer, McElroy’s has a few bottled deals, Homeplate goes for AB-InBev drafts and The Range recently added Budweiser to their World Cup draft specials.
However, if you’d like to enjoy the games at home, have a party with friends or just stash up your fridge, we have something for you!
